Rangers: Teenage winger Glenn Middleton eyes starting berth

Millwall defender Jake Cooper is wanted by Rangers

Rangers handed Steven Gerrard a win in his first competitive match as a manager by beating Macedonian side Shkupi 2-0 in a Europa League first-round qualifier.

Teenager Glenn Middleton believes he is good enough to earn a regular starting berth in Steven Gerrard's Rangers team.

And the young winger is eager to ensure his cameo is not a one-off.

"I felt we should have had the game done by the time we got the second goal with the chances we created".

"Having seen them and what they're about, they gave us one or two minor scares but I'm very confident we can go away and score goals against them", said the 38-year-old.

"We got the second goal in the end, but one concern would be we weren't more comfortable and didn't put the whole tie to bed tonight".

"It's about taking it day by day, that's the manager's message to everyone and me personally - just do what I can every day to show what I'm capable of".

And Gerrard was pleased with the performance of his Rangers team given that they only played their first real friendly - a 6-0 win over Bury at Ibrox - last week.

Jamie Murphy put Rangers in the lead midway through the first half, and James Tavernier added a second from the penalty spot in the second minute of injury time.

Gerrard was hired to his first senior management job in May, with the Liverpool legend confident his lack of first-team managerial experience would not be an issue with the Scottish giants.

"I've only played 15 minutes of first-team football so far, so it's not much, but I just need to keep building from here, show him what I can do in training every day and if I get the opportunity in games take it from there and show what I'm capable of". That was always going to be the case really given the early stage we are at under the former Liverpool man so fans wanted signs and the result more than anything. We have to make sure we perform when we go out there. "He has a part to play and it is important now he enjoys tonight and then gets himself ready for the next game".
